A New Theme: Trusting Yourselfby Ron Sussberg on 07/26/17
July brings unique challenges. We’ve reached a halfway point in the year and are now on the path towards the latter half. Summer introduces a desire to retreat to the outdoors and spend time with families despite our busy schedules.
And, July brings out the emotional Cancer inside all of us.
Typically, Cancers (the astrological sign of those born between June 22nd and July 22nd) are considered to be intensely emotional creatures. Mood swings, deepened sense of empathy, and strong opinions covered in indecision makes Cancers a difficult personality to capture. When July comes around, however, the Cancer sign reigns supreme, and can leave other signs feeling the same emotions that Cancers experience on a daily basis.
This can cause our spiritual alignment to be off centered and make us question our decisions. Because of this phenomenon, it’s important to introduce a new theme into your life during this turning point in the year:
Forgive yourself. Start a new journey. Take your lessons with you, but, ultimately, trust yourself.
Your emotions will be heightened at different times throughout the year, and your astrological sign may be feeling a bit lost in the shuffle. Remember to keep yourself grounded to who you really are and the decisions will come naturally to you. You’ll be able to fight off any mood swings and find new paths to take to calm your busy mind during these summer months and start fresh on a new perspective or project.
It’s important to also remember that in order to trust anyone else, especially at times of heightened emotions, you first need to know how to trust yourself.
“Being kind to yourself increases self-confidence and lessens your need for approval.” - Cynthia Wall, psychotherapist
Find the confidence inside of yourself and be proud of who you are. You may just be able to fight off the emotional stresses from Cancer’s part of your journey, and open yourself up to sunny, dominant, and fiery Leo in the weeks to come.
